COVID-19 What Happens if There Is A 'Brote'/Spike In New Cases

Now that the State of Alarm is no longer in force, the health authorities in the Autonomous Regions must decide themselves if they want a certain area or province where there has been a spike in new cases, to go back in the de-escalation plan.

E.g. now in Aragón, where the regions Bajo CincaCinca Medio y La Litera have been put back to Phase 2, with the limited occupancy for bars/restaurants, swimming pools etc.

Does this mean that the freedom to move has been limited now as well?
No, as only the central government has the authority to do so and if in an Autonomous Region there is a serious ‘brote’ or spike, then the relevant health authorities can ask the central government to step in.

The Autonomous Government can give out a strong recommendation and request not to travel, which is the case in Aragón in the affected areas.
